    Thrilling

    Thrilling psychological drama that is a perfectly crafted third book in the series. Although it can be easily read as a standalone novel, reading the other two books in this series, The Social Affair and The Replacement Wife, will definitely enhance your experience. In her uniquely engrossing style, Britney King has created a novel that will grab your attention from the first chapter (actually first few paragraphs) and keep you mesmerized until the last sentence. The author has developed multi-layered characters within a carefully plotted and complex story line that works and works with brilliance! Highly recommend!

    Captivating and Twisted

    Captivating and twisted! Great book that pulls you in with the first page and takes you on a wild ride. I love that it’s written in first person because you can feel even closer to the narrators and connect even more with them. I also love that the main characters are flawed. Britney King does a great job at slowy delivering pieces of their inner selves. Great read!

    A riveting psychological thriller

    “Sometimes people do bad things for good reasons” is the opening sentence of the prologue of Speak of the Devil by the brilliantly creative author Britney King. Indeed, the protagonist Vanessa spends the entire novel doing some things that many people would consider bad (such as prostituting her body, committing adultery, lying to and deceiving people, for example) and other things that everyone would clearly consider bad (murder, for example). However, Vanessa is not a bad person. Indeed, she is a victim doing the best job that she can to cope with life events beyond her control and trying to maintain her sanity and her dignity and reclaim the autonomy of her body to which all women are entitled. To explain what I mean by this characterization would necessitate “plot spoilers”. I absolutely loved Vanessa and found her to be perhaps the most intriguing and compelling female character that I have read about in recent years (and I read a lot). Speak of the Devil is an extremely well written, multi-layered, novel that spans multiple genres. It is a dark psychological thriller, a gripping romantic and erotic story, a riveting and suspenseful potentially real life tale, a dire warning of the dangers of religious cults that could have been taken from contemporary culture, and an intriguing story of human nature based primarily on two well drawn characters, Vanessa and Elliot. The characters and the plot become more and more complex and unpredictable as the plot unfolds. A plot that has more twists and turns than a bag full of snakes! Perhaps a fitting analogy since the story is full of human snakes! In brief, (although not initially revealed) Vanessa is a Siren for New Hope Church, a religious cult with complete male domination and an expectation that women will be totally subservient to their husbands and to the church. Vanessa initially appears be “merely” a high class and very sexually skilled escort. However, as a Siren for the church her job is to seduce and blackmail men (and women) as assigned by the church and collect both money and information from them and turn both over to the church. Disobedience to the church carries a very steep penalty. Vanessa was trained in sexual (and other) techniques by the church when she was younger and let’s just say, she learned her lessons well and has exceptional expertise. And, Vanessa enjoys this part of her job! For those who may be offended, the sex scenes (and there are many) are somewhat graphic but not vulgar. For those not offended, this may add another reason to why you should read this book! The main male protagonist is Elliot who is also a very conflicted and interesting character. Elliot is a chemist and a wealthy businessman who has an estranged wife that he still loves. While he initially thinks that Vanessa is simply a high priced escort for whom he is willing to pay for her services, Vanessa was actually assigned by the church to recruit him for the benefit of the church. Their mutual attraction intensifies to an explosive point as the story moves along. When Elliot is in essence kidnapped and tortured by the church, the plot really gets wild and even faster paced. If you enjoy unpredictable and fast-paced dark psychological thrillers filled with suspense and interesting multi-dimensional characters with some sex on the side, you will love Speak of the Devil. I do and I did. Britney King has penned (in my opinion) her best book yet. Definitely a full 5-star read! I received an uncorrected advanced reading copy (ARC) directly from the author in return for an honest review. This review is provided voluntarily.

    Chaos

    If I didn't have to go through a ridiculous night with my one year old I probably would have been up until 3am just the same. I found Speak of the Devil was a lot more fast paced than The Social Affair and The Replacement Wife. As always it was a nice refresher on some characters from the previous instalments of this suburbia life. I found myself being dragged along by this book. The characters are a rollercoaster and the track is chaos.

    A psychological thriller

    A cult church's leader has the members under his control, including his wife Vanessa. There are camera everywhere in the house so he can watch his wife. Vanessa is trained to be a Siren, kind of a prostitute, to seduce prospective people for a fee to join the church. Vanessa meets up with Elliot, a chemist who also has issues. This novel will keep your interest. It is a thrilling adventure that will keep you turning pages to read more. Murder and seduction.
